Yesterday my daughter, my Mom and I took a trip across the border shopping. We live in Ontario, Canada and we went to Niagara Falls and Amherst NY. We left at 8am and arrived at the border about 9:45am, we usually don't hit too much traffic but maybe because it was a long weekend there was an hour and a half wait. Which cut into our shopping time. Our first stop was Joann's where I picked up 5 DCWV stacks a stamp set and a EK Success punch. They did not have the new Joann's exclusive cartridges. We then went to the Fashion Outlet Mall. My Mom & I love Kirklands, I got a couple of pictures there. We then went to Amherst, Michael's was the first stop there after a very yummy lunch at TGI Friday's. At Michael's I just got a scrapbook some pens for doing stitching and a couple of packs of Recollections paper.
The next stop was Buffalo Stamps & Stuff (LSS) but they were just closing when we got there so we just had a quick look around but didn't get anything.
Then we were off to another Joann's, this one did have the exclusive cartridges but only one of each so sorry to anyone who live near there I bought the Kate's ABC and Baby Steps cartridges which were both on sale for $34.99. They also had Spellbinders on sale for 40% off so I got the Fancy Tags, Ribbon Tag Trio Two, Classic Ovals Small and the Classic Scalloped Ovals Small. I also got a 1" circle punch and two more DCWV stacks. I was so happy with all of my Joann's purchases that we didn't even bother going to AC Moore which is usually a first stop. We then did Target, Walmart and Kohls. At Walmart I got Lacy Labels, we don't have it at our Walmart in Canada and I got a couple of boxes of envelopes.
We started our trip home about 9pm and had another long wait at the border. We got home about midnight. It was a long day but we had a great time and I am so happy with my deals. I can't wait to play with them.
